...Akihiro Yano was taken off the active roster today with right elbow pains.  Seems he was even having trouble playing catch and taking BP.

...Ni-gun fielding / base-running coach Yutaka Nakamura filed a stolen property report with the Himeji Police Department that stated his uniform was missing.  According to the report filed with the Himeji PD, Nakamura placed his uniform in a hotel laundry bag and placed it outside of his room at around 5pm on the 5th.  He left his room for about 20 minutes and when he returned, found that his uniform top was missing.

Nakamura also apparently spotted a man wearing dark clothes hanging around his room, but when he called over to him, he simply ran away.  Other players staying at the same hotel have not reported any missing items.

...Jason Standridge's wife and son were in the stands last night and had their photo snapped.
